How Do I Wash and Store Raspberries?
Washing fruit is important. The same is true for raspberries. To optimize freshness, refrigerate unwashed berries in a single layer. Bunching them you can cause them to bruise. When you are ready to eat them, wash them carefully and spread the berries in a single layer on a plate or tray lined with paper towels. Pat the raspberries dry with another paper towel.
If you choose to freeze them, after a good wash and dry, lay them flat on a baking sheet in the freezer. Once frozen, move them to a freezer bags or into frozen containers. The berries may expand a little bit so leave a little space at the top. Frozen berries can last in the freezer for up to 12 months.
